I've been to most of Chicago's well-known wine bars, but this one surpasses the rest. In the fashionable Old Town neighborhood just north of downtown, Flight 1551 pours more than 250 wines by the glass and by the flight. Burger flights, hummus...

Why the best burger in Chicago is served at a bar with a French name might be a question for the ages. But rather than question it, just go there! The single burger at Au Cheval is actually a double, and don't even ask about the double...

B.L.U.E.S. is not a big bar, but they play plenty of great blues (and have been voted best blues club on Chicago's North Side). Primarily local artists play in this comfortable, intimate setting. If you want a seat, push way in past the stage and...

At the recommendation of a Venezuelan co-worker, I ventured out to Aripo's in Oak Park to give the aripas a try. I confess to not knowing much about Venezuelan food, but what a great experience and a nice find! This is on a quiet, quaint street in...

The name "Marion Street Cheese Market" may be a bit misleading: Hawking cheese is just one thing this Oak Park establishment does. It also stocks wine, offers tastings of locally made spirits, and serves gourmet meals. In the restaurant part, the...
